Congressman-elect Charlie Crist announced Monday the appointment of veteran policy adviser Christopher Fisher to Legislative Director in his Capitol Hill office.

“I am excited to have Chris join the team,” the former governor said in a statement. “With his years of experience serving Florida in Washington, working on the issues the people care about, Chris will hit the ground running.”

“Governor Crist’s distinguished career of public service, including as the people’s governor of my home state, truly sets him apart,” Fisher said. “He always puts the people first, and I could not be more honored for the chance to work alongside the governor to serve the people of Pinellas County.”

A graduate of the University of Miami, Fisher has a deep legislative background working on behalf of Floridians, previously serving as Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy for Congressman Patrick Murphy, Legislative Assistant for Congressman Ted Deutch, and Health Policy Fellow for Congressman Robert Wexler.
